Dear Janetha, you’re my new BFF for masterminding such a fun survey. Love, the middle schooler in me.
Said middle schooler will also give you a too-tight hug/squeeze at the Blend Retreat. See ya in less than two months.
A is for age:
I just turned 24 in January. Time to slap on the wrinkle cream.
B is for breakfast today:
Shocker… a whole grain english muffin, almond butter, and bananas with some cinnamon sprinkled on top. I tell ya, I really don’t change things up around here.
There’s a recycled photo of the non-cinnamon version
C is for currently craving:
Coffee. And lots of it. For the first time in a while, I had a rough night’s sleep last night.
D is for dinner tonight:
I actually have some salmon filets in the freezer. I’m thinking of cooking up some brown rice and slathering on some barbeque sauce on one of those guys.
E is for favorite type of exercise:
Duh… all I do is run.
And that’s actually a lie; I love lifting days. I just wanted to say that. Running is my favorite, though. You know that.
F is for an irrational fear:
I mean, I’m pretty rational. I have a very rational fear of fire. It just freaks me out and makes me nervous.
G is for gross food:
I’m not the biggest tomato fan. I don’t mind grape tomatoes, but I would never just eat one by itself (I can handle one in a sandwich, though).
H is for hometown:
Good ol’ South Jersey. WHOOP WHOOP!
I is for something important:
See above. It is very important you realize the people of Jersey Shore are n-o-t New Jersey. At least, not the Jersey I grew up in.
It’s also pretty important that you realize there are still tickets left for the May Blend Retreat in Colorado. Seriously, come hang out with us. We’re a really fun bunch.
J is for current favorite jam:
Jam like… music? Or jelly? Cause I don’t really have a favorite jelly.
C’mon. You all know I’m a sucker for Best Love Song by T. Pain and Chris Brown.
The music video is so freaking weird… but I can’t not smile (and sprint) when the song comes on.
K is for kids:
Maybe in 17 years. And by 17 I’m only slightly exaggerating.
L is for current location:
Virginia Beach, VA. Wompwomp.
M is for the most recent way you spent money:
Weeelll, I did just buy a plane ticket to Colorado…
And these TOMS I’ve been wanting for eons.
N is for something you need:
I really need a new quality affordable skincare line. I’m over the overpriced Arbonne stuff I bought at the end of last summer.
O is for occupation:
I work in education communications, y’all.
P is for pet peeve:
I’d love to just say “rude people,” but that’s so generic. I do hate it when people don’t use their turn signals on the road, though. If I were a bird-flipper or a honker, that’s when I would use both.
It’s probably a good thing I’m neither of those things.
Thank you for so many laughs, dear Oatmeal.
Q is for a quote:
I have two for you:
“You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face… do the thing you think you cannot do.” -Eleanor Roosevelt
“If you believe God is sovereign over every aspect of your life, it is possible to put trust in all situations. Don’t waste energy regretting the way things are or thinking about what could have been.”
R is for random fact about you:
My favorite Starbucks drink is an skinny salted caramel mocha, extra hot. Whoever gets me one first is my new best friend.
S is for favorite healthy snack:
I loove me some Clif Bars. And, actually, I’ve had a thing for Chobani lately… and it’s a good thing.
Because that’s my fridge right now.
And, for a little teaser, I hope you guys are in the mood for some CHO too.
T is for favorite treat:
Geez. I can only pick one? Probably fro-yo with lots of Snickers and Oreos and Reese’s on top. That, or a double Oreo chocolate Blizzard from DQ. Or underbaked brownies. Or popcorn.
I have lots of favorites.
U is for something that makes you unique:
I recently heard someone say any blonde above the age of 13 dyes her hair. False; I’ve never dyed my hair. Does that make me unique? Kindasorta?
V is for favorite vegetable:
I really like broccoli. And mushrooms. And green beans.
W is for today’s workout:
I’m going to do the first hardcore upper body workout since my last surgery. As I have my second surgery on Monday, I’m trying to pump some weights while I still can.
X is for X-rays you’ve had:
Is it bad I don’t even know what X-rays I’ve had? Obviously I’ve had millions of dental and orthodontic X-rays. I think I had X-rays for when I got tubes in my ears as a kid, too. Care to add to that list, mom?
Y is for yesterday’s highlight:
A new-found Andy Grammer discovery immediately followed by a new obsession. Geez, why didn’t anyone tell me everything he touches turns to gold? I’ve had Keep Your Head Up on my playlists for a while, but I wasn’t aware of other quality tunes.
But seriously. Go download Fine By Me. I can’t stop.
Dear Andy, It’s Fine By Me if you never leave, too.
Z is for your time zone:
EST, baby. I like how I say that like it’s something to be proud of.
